Wahlberg Less Optimistic About "Departed" Sequel

by | April 3, 2007 | Comments

Not too long ago, "The Departed" survivor Mark Wahlberg was buzzing around and proposing ideas for a sequel. Although we’ve been told that screenwriter William Monahan is presently banging away on a second screenplay, it doesn’t seem like the follow-up is going to happen any time real soon.

"Until I’m actually on the set it’s not happening," is what Mark told a UK news site, comparing the project to the oft-discussed but not-happening sequel to "The Italian Job." The singer-turned-actor then climbed out on a limb by saying something revolutionary: That most sequels kinda stink. Except "The Godfather Part 2," of course.

The actor seems to take a lot of pride in the fact that he’s never done a sequel before … but I bet he hopes we didn’t notice that he’s already done a big fistful of remakes, including "Planet of the Apes," "The Truth About Charlie," "The Italian Job," and (of course) "The Departed."

Once there’s something concrete on "The Departed 2," we’ll be sure to let you know.
